ClinGen: Sharing Data. Building Knowledge. Improving Care.
The Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) is an NIH-funded initiative dedicated to building a genomic knowledge base to improve patient care. ClinGen supports efforts to harness the data from both research efforts and clinical genetic testing and make it available to the public through resources such as NCBI's ClinVar. This data will be used to propel expert and machine-driven curation activities to aid in our understanding of the relationship between genomic variation and human health. By identifying those genes and variants most relevant to patient care, we will move closer to the promise of personalized genomic medicine.
